Iowa lawmakers again are setting sights on traffic cameras because the American Civil Liberties Union presented the governor with more than 10,000 signatures in support of the ban.
I am not for the ban or for the state to control them. City leaders should set the fines and have control. As far as being fair, is going through a red light fair to drivers who obey the laws?
I drove in Cedar Rapids for six years, five days a week, every morning for a car dealership. I was in three accidents, none my fault. One was a hit from the driver side, a person went through a stop sign. The other two I was hit from the behind while stopped at a red light. If I had not been there, the other car would have gone through the red light. I saw drivers go through a red light two to three times a week.
If the cameras save one life, they are worth it. Law abiders, speak up.
